Sunday Tempo Run, by
11.211 km
49 minutes
April 14, 2019

The black toe nail is a souvenir from my race last week. It is not really causing me any issues with my running today though, which is good.

After last weekends race, its good to get back running some faster paced runs again. Sunday is a tempo run for me, with two ultimate goals: 1. Improve my 10km speed, looking forward to my triathlon runs later in the year. 2. Specifically training at race pace for my up coming races, while increasing the distance.

I did want to do a 12km run today, but I got a little lazy, but at least did 11km. I need to continue to increase the speed and distance over the coming weeks to get me ready for my marathon in July.

Gnarly! Well worn!


Yep, kinda proud of it


Does not matter how unfitted you are, just gently start running.... @runningproject quote sumorunner.gif


That's one thing that I haven't experienced yet--the black toenail. Though after running in the wrong shoes for a few weeks when I started ramping up my mileage recently has some nagging blisters sticking around right in the joint under my big toe. Today's run didn't seem to aggravate it too badly, though, so hoping I'm over the hump. Still definitely won't get any foot modeling contracts any time soon...🤣


hahaha, yeah, my career as a foot model is definitely over as well. It's weird, I usually don't have many issues but my race last week, I have this black nasty one and about three other toes that are bruised as well.
